The Division of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach is dedicated to creating and supporting a campus environment that supports the educational mission of the university. We serve all members of the campus community – students, faculty, and staff – in matters related to equity, diversity and equal opportunity/affirmative action. We also support those who work with the ND Agricultural Experiment Station in Fargo, its research and extension centers throughout the state, and the North Dakota State University Extension Service, including all county offices.
The Division supports and advances the university’s international initiatives and programs, enhancing the institution’s global recognition and strengthening its activities and policies on international research and education. On a local and regional level, the Division also seeks to enhance partnerships with Tribal Colleges, communities of color, and other diverse communities.
The Division of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach oversees campus-wide efforts to create a community that is actively engaged in and committed to inclusion, pluralism and a culture of global engagement.
Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach envisions an NDSU community where all members are full partners in an environment that promotes a commitment to diversity and global citizenship.
